How much data is too much data? Trick question – we all know you can never have enough. To give our awesome rural customers more flexibility and capacity when it comes to data, we’re rolling out unlimited off-peak data across all our plans.
Why use unlimited off-peak to spread out usage
Not surprisingly, the evening hours are the heaviest on data usage, when everyone is inside, fed and ready to relax with data-heavy services like Spotify, YouTube and Netflix. This is where users run into problems as, with any broadband service, the number of airwaves is finite, and the number of devices being used keeps growing.
By offering unlimited off-peak data with all our rural broadband plans, we’re looking to ease the strain on our networks by giving customers an alternative time to chew up data.
How can I use unlimited off-peak data?
Off-peak means from 12 am until 8 am. So, from midnight until 8 am you will have unlimited data available on your wireless broadband plan.
We realise this is late at night, but it is a great time to run software updates or download movies, without impacting on your normal usage allowance.
How do I get unlimited data all the time?
Switch to the unlimited plan and receive genuine unlimited data, no hidden costs, no slowdowns.
